NRB Board of Directors Adopts Five Resolutions

NRB logoThe National Religious Broadcasters has made public the resolutions adopted by the association’s Board of Directors last month.

Generally, resolutions are adopted during NRB’s annual Convention and serve as statements by NRB as an association expressing its support or opposition to domestic legislation, cultural movements, judicial decisions, geopolitical or international issues, or events of particular importance to NRB members.

This year, five resolutions were adopted. One highlighted non-profit ministries and the importance of federal policies, including the charitable tax deduction and a possible FCC rule change suggested by NRB for third-party fundraising by non-commercial stations, in honoring the autonomy and vitality of those ministries. Another resolution lauded international religious freedom and free speech, with specific attention on the Middle East.

The other resolutions focused on “Must Carry” television law that is vital for many Christian TV stations; opposition to a performance tax on broadcasters; and prayer support for all branches of the federal government, especially the Supreme Court as it “consider[s] cases this year that center on our nation’s acceptance of the definition of marriage, the union of one man and one woman, and, therefore, the Justices’ deliberations may profoundly reinforce or undermine American families, the basic building blocks of our society, as well as the fundamental religious freedom rights of individuals and organizations that steadfastly uphold the definition of marriage in accordance with their faith.”
